    God protect our kids from all kids of tragedies. I could not understand why our youth are placing themselves in danger. Why are they going to swim in river whereas they dont know swimming. Taking bath in a river is not a simple job. There might be change in tide suddenly and this will take one in surprise. We cannot fight the force of water.
